If you want to know about this event from all points of view, then this is the book for you. It is not a novel or story in any way. It is a leaarning experience. It has great detail about the famine as seen from the eyes of the all Irish sects, the English and even America and how it affected more of the world than just Ireland. It is enlightening intellectually. I thought I was getting a book in more of a novel form. I did however read the entire book as I was interested in the famine. It seems unbiased, but portrays how the famine was looked upon by the different peoples and how the Irish did and did not cope with it. It was so tragic for much of the country and you can understand the resentment felt by those affected.

I am a high school sophomore and I chose to read this book for my project. The book was well explained about the condition of the Potato Famine. I learned the causes and effects about the Potato Famine and the disease that led to the lack of potatoes. I learned that it made the Irish population go down a lot. Many moved out from the Potato Famine to other countries to start a new life. It created bitterness in the hearts of the Irish for how they were treated. There are political religion involvements. The book has a lot precise facts. The author wrote a lot of good information that I could understand in the book. The book also has interesting photos that would make you understand more too. If someone wants to get good details about the Famine, this is the book to read. At first, I didn’t know anything about the Potato Famine but after reading the book I now know what Ireland went through and how people tried to survive.Was this review helpful?
